ASTM International Committee’s top annual award presented to Joseph Tauber

May 15, 2018

ASTM International’s committee on metal powders and metal powder products (B09) has presented its top annual award, the Award of Merit, to Joseph M Tauber of Kennametal Inc., Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA. The prestigious award, which includes the accompanying title of fellow, is ASTM’s highest recognition for individual contributions to developing standards.

Tauber was honoured for technical expertise and outstanding contributions to the committee in the development of material testing standards, and for masterful leadership in other international standards organisations, especially with respect to cemented carbides and associated raw materials.

A member of ASTM International since 1999, Tauber is also a member of the ASTM committees on Additive Manufacturing technologies (F42) and wear and erosion (G02). In 2015, the committee on metal powders and metal powder products honoured Tauber with the Distinguished Service Award.

Tauber, a staff engineer, has previously served as a supervisor of chemical analysis and a laboratory technician for Kennametal Inc., and a lab instructor at St. Vincent College. He holds a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from St. Vincent College and a master’s degree in industrial engineering from the University of Pittsburgh.
